“Peace begins with a smile..”
― Mother Teresa
I generally pin myself as a scrooge. But my antics for the Holidays are unpredictable. One year I decided we would all (jersey cow, goats, dogs, horses,Curtis and I) line up for a picture with elf aprons and Santa hats.
A few years later, we hosted a neighborhood Christmas nativity. We had to snub the neighbors donkey to a post when he wanted to bolt. The dogs, sporting angel wings, almost ran the horses through the fence. And the baby Jesus, a rough coat Jack Russel Terrier named Mic Jagger, drank half the eggnog before we read the scripture.
So this year…..well we always send out a Circle S Christmas card. I asked Curtis if he would help. We have three bottle calves due to bad luck. One twin – the other two lost their mothers. I thought – what if I put wreaths around their necks saying “peace on earth” for our Christmas card. Easy.
The plan is – we feed them their bottles and slip the wreaths around their necks. I snap the shot. Right? Wrong…..
“Peace” and “On” did great – we slipped “Earth” around her neck and she ditched the bottle and bolted. Like a noose around her neck. I didn’t even think to close the corral gate. There she went, Earth, spinning and then…out of sight…..
She was so stressed by the time we caught up with her. I felt bad!
So, stay tuned for the Christmas card pic:)
